I just noticed that we got a new banner here. Kind of dull looking actually. I hope they have something else in mind, something with a sub in it maybe.

It is always difficult to come onto these posts and always have to agree with the criticisms that are voiced and I am an honestly waiting for the occasion when praise is bestowed on Ubisoft and I have an opportunity to agree with it. But yet again they have honestly made a 'pig's ear' of things again.

What a boring and somewhat basic way to portray their new release. Look at the banner for Silent Hunter 4 Wolves and there is no comparison. it depicts, in that one shot what to expect in the game.

This banner is to say the least 'disappointing'.

you're right on this one mav.
the new banner is a poor representation of what to expect.

You and me agreeing on something...well that's a positive!!!!

Maybe Ubisoft should consider a 'Banner' Competition and get something decent at the top of the page.

I know we have some very talented artists here and I'm thinking about a contest for the best banner for the SH5 Forum. I can make no promises, But I think I can talk the higher ups into using the best banner for the top of the forum. Post your banners here and let's see what develops.

I like the idea of a banner competition, but with one caveat: it has to be completely original and not use what is already in use and the reason for this thread.

I think this forum will be more receptive to a banner contest compared to some of the other forums where the community has an indifferent attitude and did not really participate in previous contests.

Good luck for all who enter and Tambor getting it approved.

OK. I've submitted my idea to the Ubi higher ups and I will post back later when I have some feedback or info to pass on.

As for content of the banner I think it should conform to forum rules, ect. One more thing, let's keep the artwork clean or this idea won't take off.

Be back later with good news, I hope. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Thanks for the compliment, Maverick. We have some pretty talented people around here when it comes to artwork. I have no doubt that there will be a great many better than the two I threw together. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I like especially the second one. Remembers me the Tamyia model covers. A si know many tiem sin gaming artwork crew goes in conflict with engineDevs as tehy have to reach a compromis on what good artworks to put that will be fien for the engine. bets example bungie for ODST.

I want to know if the crew changes a littl ebit ( at least in face etc) and see him attaching to his space photos of his family etc or othe r thing slike that. Im looking forward to the crew of sub speaking german in various action like loading torps or just eating or playing cards.

Thats fine but whats the rules Size,content,Old pictures, ie SH5 release shots or your own creations.Just to clear this up as I was accused of cheating in EMBLEMS Comp ??by some of the children.

02-08-2010, 07:56 AM
as for size i assume that it schould be no larger than the current one.
on used graphics i am of oppinion that they should be at least Silent Hunter or non copyright protected pictures just to avoid problems afterwards.
if you think that there are not enough screenshots availlable it's always possible to make them from te current video footage as well.

but this is,of course,only my opinion.

finaly;what is the ending date of the contest and how many pictures pro user are there?

What he said!!!!!

I know that Ubi has had banner contests in the past and I know that you know that I know it to be true. Oh, you did omit one caveat to the rules; the new banner can't use any part of the "current" banner, it has to be 100% original.

so the "silent hunter 5,battle for the atlantic" logo should not be in it?

To answer your question YES you can use the logo.

@ WK - nowhere does it say 100% original work, it says the banner must be the entrants own work yes but it doesn’t say they cannot use other artwork to form their own original banner design. Your insistence to misinterpret wording to create trouble where none exists is quite unnecessary.

This is what I am referring to. Yes, it should say Silent Hunter V Battle Of The Atlantic, but with a better presentation.

There's really no point in allowing the community to create their own banner if we then set limitations on the design of said banner. The whole idea is they create what they think is good within their artistic judgement and Ubi then decide which they feel is the best.

If we start dictating what imagery and logos can or cannot be on the banner it begs the question why bother letting the community design it in the first place

So no its not missing any caveat.
